Sauder’s Robert H. Lee Graduate School to host full-day experiential MBA event


Tomorrow, March 3, Sauder's Robert H. Lee Graduate School will host prospective MBA students at the 2012 MBA Experience Day, a full-day experiential event that will also be streamed live online so attendees from around the world can take part.

Participants will be welcomed with an introduction and synopsis of the re-imagined MBA by Arthur Redillas, Director of Admissions and Recruitment for the program. Following this, an overview of the new program’s four integrated career tracks will be provided, with lead professors from each of the tracks introducing the highlights of their curriculum.

Marketing professor and social media expert Paul Cubbon, and consulting professor Ron Cenfetelli will be on hand to discuss aspects of the program. After a networking lunch, award-winning professor Darren Dahl will host a sample MBA class on an intriguing marketing case.

Following the master class, Ian Christie, Director of Graduate Careers at the Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre will showcase the services and resources available to MBA students and outline how the centre supports current students and alumni on the path to achieving their career goals.

The afternoon MBA Alumni Panel will discuss what life is like in the MBA program and talk about the impact that the UBC MBA has had on each of their careers. During the panel, attendees can make comments and ask questions of the school’s alumni and current students through an online chat platform, or through Twitter using the hashtag #mbaexp.

At the closing wine and cheese reception, participants will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with professors, students, alumni and staff. This networking event is designed to connect event attendees with their future classmates and the people who will teach and support them in the program.
